This morning we have some exciting news for Potter fans who frequently visit Kings Cross station (or for those of you who will be visiting London.) We posted quite some time ago about the new location of Platform 9 ¾ within the station and the possibility of a store. Well, today we can officially announce that The Harry Potter™ Shop At Platform 9 ¾ will open its doors to the public on Saturday, 15th December 2012 at 7:30 am. The shop will be open 7 days a week from 7:30am-10pm and is located at Unit 1, King’s Cross Station, London N1 9AP.

Situated near the platform 9 ¾ trolley at London’s newly refurbished King’s Cross Station, the shop will sell items such as golden platform 9 ¾ collectible train tickets, wands, robes, uniforms and other collectibles in homage to the successful Harry Potter™ film franchise and book series.
THE HARRY POTTER™ SHOP AT PLATFORM 9 ¾ has been produced by Jonathan Sands (Founder and Chief Executive of London Film Museum) and partners, under license from Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Speaking ahead of the launch of the shop just in time for Christmas 2012, Jonathan Sands of London Film Museum and Platform 9 ¾ K1ngs Cross Ltd said “ We are proud to be opening the official Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 ¾ in association with Warner Bros. Consumer Products as this is precisely where Harry’s journey to Hogwarts began. King’s Cross Station has recently undergone the most amazing re-development and we are delighted to be a part of it thanks to Network Rail.”
